A former Big Brother Naija 2021 housemate, Yerins Abraham, is among the cast for Okirika, a forthcoming comedy series.
Okirika is produced by Muka Ray and was unveiled at a Lagos event in September.
Yerins, who was the first housemate to be evicted from the ‘Shine Ya Eye’ house in August, will be joined by other film stars, including Real Warri Pikin, Mercy Eke, Ini Edo, Korede Bello, Woli Agba, Broda Shaggi, and Priscilla Ojo.
Others are Zicsaloma, Jide Kosoko, Olaiya Igwe, Yinka Quadri, Binta Ayo-Mogaji, Toro Aramide, Yvonne Jegede, Jide ‘Jblaze’ Oyegbile, and Kitan Bukola.
Okrika is a comedy-packed movie series based on the fairly used clothes trading business in Lagos that also combines the nuances of street area boys.
Speaking on the series during its unveiling, Ray said: “Being one of the happiest people on earth, Nigerians have an enviable knack to indulge in what makes them happy. Cinema figures have shown that comedy attracts huge patronage.
“And comedy skits on social media are widely viewed. We are quite aware of what Nigerians are passionate about. ‘Okirika’ will surely wow their fantasies.”
